Free Probability and Applications
Welcome to the homepage for the Shanks workshop on Free Probability and Applications, taking place September 15th and 16th, 2018.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in free probability theory and adjacent fields, including random matrix theory, probability, and subfactor theory to discuss possible applications of free probability in these fields.
We strongly encourage students and postdocs to attend this conference. Some financial support is available.
